Accidentally in Love with the Pilot by Teri Anne Stanley
Accidentally in Love with the Pilot - Teri Anne Stanley

 

What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas. Not in the real world anyway. A little relaxation in Sin City becomes a wild ride for two strangers. For a loner with the best of intentions and a wild child with escape on her mind, a few too many glasses of liquid courage has them putting a ring on it. The problem is neither can remember where, when or why. Except when it starts to become all too clear. Not only have they lost their minds but if they don't step carefully they just might lose their hearts. Teri Stanley always makes my heart a little lighter with her humorous tales of over the top romance. Accidentally in Love With a Pilot is wicked entertainment. Fun romance.

Sliding Home (Locker Room Diaries #2) by Kathy Lyons
Sliding Home - Kathy Lyons

 

It's been said that opposites attract. Sliding Home takes that common occurrence and runs with it in the sweetest of ways. Kathy Lyons pulls at the heart while keeping hormones on full alert. Ellie is an introvert with a kind heart and little less confidence. Jake is an extrovert with a boisterous nature but a heart no less kind. They shouldn't fit, but they do. They bring out the best in each other. He encourages her to take risks and she helps him tone down. Along the way each becomes more secure in their skin and their hopes for the future. Cute read.

Be Mine, Sweetheart (Something Borrowed, #3) by Codi Gary
Be Mine, Sweetheart - Codi Gary

 

For Kelly Barrow the love business has been good to her. She gets to help others find their happily ever after even though hers didn't pan out. With a love of a wonderful family and a little help from her friends she may have the chance to discover her own fairy tale ending. Be Mine, Sweetheart is a friends to lovers romance. Chris may have been relegated to the friend zone, but he won't take that lying down. Gary has a way of pouring on the charm with a handful of heartache in between.

Girls' Night Out by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke
Girls' Night Out - Lisa Steinke,Liz Fenton

A special thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

For estranged friends Ashley, Natalie, and Lauren, it’s time to heal the old wounds between them. Where better to repair those severed ties than on a girls’ getaway to the beautiful paradise of Tulum, Mexico? But even after they’re reunited, no one is being completely honest about the past or the secrets they’re hiding. When Ashley disappears on their girls’ night out, Natalie and Lauren have to try to piece together their hazy memories to figure out what could have happened to her, while also reconciling their feelings of guilt over their last moments together.

 

Was Ashley with the man she’d met only days before? Did she pack up and leave? Was she kidnapped? Or worse—could Natalie or Lauren have snapped under the weight of her own lies?

 

As the clock ticks, hour by hour, Natalie and Lauren’s search rushes headlong into growing suspicion and dread. Maybe their secrets run deeper and more dangerous than one of them is willing—or too afraid—to admit.

 

Liz and Lisa, what a ride!  This book was fantastic!  The writing is layered, dynamic, and oh so clever.  The character depictions are detailed and fierce and I was completely captivated by the timelines and narratives.    

 

What Fenton and Steinke do best is conversation.  Did you not feel like you were on this trip too?  Beyond the story are deeper themes of secrets, complicated relationships (at what point is a friendship obligatory?) and mystery.  The brilliant aspect of this book is the juxtaposition of complex friendships against a frantic search for a loved one.  Female relationships are complex, but three is never an ideal number and this ratchets the tension even further.  I would highly recommend this book.
